Arts and Crafts

posted by: Ashcroft, on 3rd March 2012

On Thursday afternoon we had another Art’s and Craft’s session.  We made hanging decorations in preparation for our Easter celebration.  Residents had the option of working with a variety of materials, creating pretty hanging birds.  You can see the decoration displayed in our lounge, or in our photo gallery.

A lot has been written on the importance of Arts and Crafts within a nursing home setting, and I hope the residents who took part took something away from the activity.

” Arts and crafts provide a sense of purpose, socialization, non-competitive interaction,tactile and visual stimulation and most importantly, a feeling of belonging.”  Arts and Crafts with Dementia 2006
